How to Join

Thank you for your interest in joining the Bluegrass Chapter of the Society for Human Resource Management. By joining BGSHRM, you will have the opportunity to network with hundreds of local HR professionals, attend informative training sessions and have access to unique "members only" benefits.

The cost for membership is $50 per calendar year for members of national SHRM and $75 for non-members of National SHRM.  Please keep in mind that membership runs for the calendar year, so depending on your join date you will be required to renew at the beginning of the year to keep your membership active.

Transfer and Refund Policy

Can't make it? Would you like to transfer an upcoming registration from one event to another or can someone else from your office attend in your place? Substitutions are allowed; however, the non-member rate may apply. Requests for transfers must be made at least seven days in advance, as BGSHRM pays the venue based on the numbers of registered attendees. Please submit your request via email to communications@bgshrm.org. No refunds or transfers of fees will be made after the date of the event.

Generally, all payments for membership dues and registration to BGSHRM events are non-refundable. However, if an event must be rescheduled (i.e. severe weather in which travel is prohibited or impractical) OR you are unable to attend due to unforeseen circumstances (i.e. family emergency), we will apply your payment to a future event which can be requested by emailing communications@bgshrm.org. This request must be sent prior to or within 7 days of the event. 

BGSHRM has no responsibility for goods or services provided by our sponsors, their websites, or by other websites you may have linked to from BGSHRM.org.
